I adore this place! The food is excellent -- homemade pita, sauces and mouthwatering Souvlaki -- and the prices can't be beat. Great for a quick lunch or take-away.

We were a party of 7 and they took such good care of all of us. The Greek Platter, gyro, Greek salad were all delicious. The real home run is their bread. You could make a meal on it and the dipping sauce. Portions are...More
